The wait is over. Gigi Hadid is finally telling us the name of her baby girl… *drum roll please* Khai!
Khai made her debut on Gigi’s bio, causing commotion around her fans with the beautiful name that seems to have a Vietnamese origin, and also means “Warrior Strong.”
The loving parents have also shared the lavish and adorable gifts given by their celebrity friends, including Taylor Swift, Donatella Versace and Jimmy Fallon.
Fans of the iconic couple have been posting about a few theories surrounding the name of the baby, including what could be a tribute to the Arabic heritage of both families.
With Zayn’s last name (Malik) and Gigi’s father (Mohamed) having Pakistani and Palestinian roots, respectively.
If this is true ‘Khai’ could also mean “Crowned” in Arabic, which also seems to be a beautiful fit, knowing that ‘Malik’ means “King.”
While the couple is yet to make an official announcement about a possible middle name or meaning, their choice is very refreshing, as ‘Khai’ is actually a gender neutral name.
Another fun fact is that the name is very similar to Bella Hadid’s middle name (Khair) and their paternal grandmother’s name, Khairiah Hadid.
The family also has a very interesting history behind their heritage, including the royal descent through Mohamed Hadid’s Palestinian roots.
